history
HISTORY
  • MSF left Shabunda in December 2007 following 10 years of supporting the HGR and 7 health centres. CRS took over the HC’s and CORDAID took over support to the HGR
  • May/June 2009 in Shabunda province, govt. troops (FARDC) begin chasing FDLR & there are reports of 35,000 IDPs on the run in Shabunda & Lulingu (Kimia II)
  • Following a request from the MCZ - MSF team in Bukavu conducted an explo in Shabunda & Lulingu in June 2009
explo findings
Explo Findings
  • June 2009, MSF Explo team visited Shabunda & Lulingu towns and villages and health centres in the neighbourhood
  • Appeared to be large scale displacement, approx 35,000 Shabunda was deemed not to be the right location and needs were still being met
  • Free care for indigents hardly existed, the added burden of the IDP population could not be met.
explo findings continued
Explo Findings continued
  • Drug ruptures in many AAP supported health centres
  • Absence of MD’s because of lack of drugs and medical materials
  • In Katshungu hospital, needles were being “cooked” to re-use for patients
  • Non functioning cold chains due to lack of fuel
  • Problems with monitoring identified: E.g. in 1 HC, no drugs were found for STI tx yet cases were registered as treated ?

MSF has been working in DRC Kivus since 1991 responding to effects of conflict on the population
  • Until 2005, MSF charged a “prix forfait” of 20 francs congolais in Shabunda and other projects at request of MoH
  • From 2006, prix forfait was phased out by MSF
  • Total number of consultations increased with removal of prix forfait consistently in all our projects
  • Experience of CHWs showed that cost was a barrier for some ill patients requiring referral

Lessons Learned
  • Time Lapse between explo and intervention was too long, 5 weeks due to difficulty in finding French speaking international staff available & flight constraints
  • Overestimation of needs and patient numbers
  • Anticipated numbers of SGBV not found
  • Different displacement characteristics to MSF North Kivu experience - IDP’s returned home sooner than anticipated
conclusions
CONCLUSIONS

MSF believes in free health care in the contexts in which we work

Although Lulingu intervention had some unexpected elements (lessons learned) we would do the same again

MSF strives to provide quality monitored and supervised health care for the most vulnerable patients
